Named after Ralph Lauren’s luxury flagship at 867 Madison Avenue in New York, the Ralph Lauren watch brand’s latest 867 models continue to feature a combination of Arabic and Roman numerals on their dials. The watch is going to be available in three sizes, 21.5-mm, 27.5-mm and 32-mm in diameter. The 27.5-mm and 32-mm men’s version comes in an 18k rose-gold or 18k white-gold case and is powered by Caliber RL430, an extra-flat, mechanical, manual-wind movement made by Piaget for Ralph Lauren. It won’t be on display, however: surprisingly, the 867 comes with a solid caseback. Prices start at $29,100.

The new, smaller, 39-mm-diameter version of the RL Automotive watch, on the other hand, features a smoky sapphire crystal caseback and a shot-blasted, black gunmetal stainless-steel case. The mechanical, manual-wind movement (Caliber RL701) is made by Jaeger-LeCoultre for Ralph Lauren and displays hours, minutes, and a small-seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. It offers a 70-hour power reserve. The bezel is made of amboyna hardwoods, the signature element of the RL Automotive range. The price is $15,400.
